It was like driving through Siberia trying to get to my parents’ house from the airport. The South doesn’t really know how to deal with snow, so almost all minor/back roads are still require some sort of army vehicle to navigate. Apparently, Charlottesville literally shut down for two days– literally, the whole city. Silly.
In any case, staying with my parents for Winter Break: it’s good for catching up on sleep, blog posts, and for cuddling near the wood stove. I also have plans for finishing Philip Roth’s American Pastoral, working on my senior thesis, and (gulp) planning a future for after graduation.
I also returned home to a Lamy 2000 on my desk– a belated birthday gift that had finally arrived in the mail. Look for a review, or general pen updates, soon.
